JOHN COMPTON'S "APPALOOSA" NEW ALBUM SOON...
I recently received an e-mail from Mr. John Compton member of the great late sixties "APPALOOSA" band, for the promotion of his music -- "Appaloosa" & his personal "To Luna 1972" album -- here in my blog. (see archives)
There are some great news from this legendary band but I guess it's better to read the e-mail below:
I am writing to thank you for creating a post for my 'To Luna' LP
on your Small Town Pleasures Blog.
My band Appaloosa has reformed and is presently recording our follow-up record.
I have suggested to Raven Records (Australia) that they consider reissuing our Compton & Batteau 'In California'
LP. (Collector's Choice Music recently passed on the reissue suggestion)
Feel free to ask some people to send emails to Raven Records saying "Please reissue Compton & Batteau"
Here are the names and emails to people at Raven Records:
In closing, please find below rough mixes of two tracks form Appaloosa's forthcoming yet untitled CD:
Bill Elliott who played keyboards on 'Compton & Batteau' and 'To Luna' will be adding his amazing piano parts.
Daivd Reiser will also be adding his great bass playing.
December Rain MP3
I Forgot To Ask Your Name MP3
Thanks again for helping to promote our music.
Keep up the good work!
John Parker Compton aka Appaloosa
